Villa striker Bent: Young showing why Man Utd want him - as good as Modric

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent isn't surprised Manchester United want teammate Ashley Young. The winger is hotly tipped to make the move to Old Trafford this summer although he is due to meet Villa chairman Randy Lerner this week to discuss his future.

Bent said: "When he didn't start (against Switzerland) a lot of people thought it was a bit strange but Ash came on and was magnificent.

"He has shown people why clubs like Manchester United are after him and he is a top, top player.

"He has played the last four internationals and got three man of the matches so he is on fire at the moment.

"That's why teams like United want him.

"I have always said the best player I have played with club-wise was Luka Modric at Tottenham but Ash can't be too far behind now, if not on a par with him."
